Labour Unions to embark on indefinite strike Tuesday

The Organised Labour in Kebbi State has instructed workers to begin indefinite strike on Tuesday, March 3.

This is following the inability of the Government to pay the N30,000 Minimum Wage.

Alhaji Umar Alhassan, the state Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), disclosed this to newsmen at the end of an Executive Council Meeting on Thursday in Birnin Kebbi, NAN reports.

“We are here together to discuss the ultimatum we gave the state government on our demands and it will end by Monday, March 2 at 12: a.m.

“That is why we summoned an extra large meeting to inform our members about the situation.

“There has not been positive response from government in respect to our demands.

“We have directed members to go on and mobilise ahead of our industrial action which is coming up on Tuesday,” he said.

Alhassan said although the congress received an invitation for a meeting from government on Wednesday, the invitation will not stop labour from going on with the strike.

Also speaking, the state Chairman of Trade Union Congress (TUC), Alhaji Hussaini Yelwa, said all unions under the congress had been mobilised for the strike.
